You know it when you are surrounded by it. What could I be referring to? B R I L L A N C E....
Simply Grand" about his happenings in the shop, his expertise on antiques and educated flair for design.
Here Bart is posed for a blog entry entitled; "What is Bart wearing?" (here), his brilliant take on color and tongue-in-cheek reference to the blog "What is James wearing". A must read for his insight on color versus "greige" and our ongoing dialogue on what to finish this settee in.
Me........patterned linen, something funky
Finally agreeing, I am faced with a new dilemma, well a few.......a lack of time to find the fabric and now back to thinking patterned linen (sorry Bart) since by the time I do find it we may be peeking at Autumn.
Jump in here.......what would you do? Maybe none of the above, perhaps something entirely different?
Anyways, I digress. The current dilemma is a sudden burst of sales and a near empty shop with an important international crowd due to arrive. His inner Mc Guyver surfaces to save the day without a budget. Think paint (doable), dumpster diving for industrial strapping, a computer program, painting tape and straight pins to ultimately achieve a room fit for Madeleine Castaing.
I don't know, maybe natural linen is the best choice?
Hate to blow a surprise but let Bart see here the beautiful bench I have in reserve. If he tires of the natural look, he can reach back and grab a new paint color!
I do have one complaint about his blog, no, make that a huge complaint,
"WE NEED MORE ENTRIES!"
xo (he hates this) Bart
